NOTE FROM THE FOUNDER...
OVER SEVENTEEN YEARS AGO, when I founded my first
AS/400 commercial software company, my goal was superb and
unlimited 24x365 technical support for anyone
involved in implementation, operation, or maintenance of my
software. At Curbstone, that goal is achieved, technical
support by knowledgable programmers is included with every
license and annual support agreement.

"When pigs fly!"
We have found the AS/400 to be so capable that many challenges
that, commonly rejected as impossible, are easily achieved with
the right software and positive attitiude. Hence, the old adage
"When pigs fly!" is not a common answer at Curbstone. Click here to read about one of our mascots
and many things that only SEEMED impossible at the time...
